dvc presentation incentives?

Hi I'm very interested in owning a piece of disney. But my husband doesn't want to sit through the presentation. I've heard they sometimes offer incentives for listening to the sale pitch. We will be visiting in Nov. staying at the YC. Has anyone heard this? This may be the only way to convince my husband to spend some time in a presentation.
thanks for any info!

sometimes they will give you small gift cards ($15 or so, IIRC) or fastpasses.

sometimes they won't give you much more than some ice cream.

you can go by yourself if you want. alternatively, there is a model of the BWV rooms just off the boardwalk that you can wander through with no obligation to talk to anyone...if you happen to be in that area... (just across the water from the YC.)

How does your husband feel about ice cream, lemonaid, & cookies? Maybe some fast passes or a small gift card. If you are looking for them to pick up a part or all of your vacation forget it. They will however pick you up at your resort or park and give you a roundtrip ride to the presentation. Tell your husband it is very painless and low key.

Good luck

What about deals on the purchase?

I want to say back in 2001 when we went on a presentation that they we were offered a deal if we "purchased" during our trip.

As others have said, fastpasses or ice cream are what have been given out. I have also heard of $15 gift cards.

Don't buy direct from Disney

The presentations are not bad- we did one last year. But definitely don't buy from Disney as you can save substantial amounts of money buying on the secondary market.

Cheers.

Unless you want BLT. I don't think there would be much for resale at this point. You might get fastpasses from attending the sales pitch.

There was a sales pitch? Seriously, if any of the guides I met gave me a "sales pitch" I was oblivious to it. Each time, I made my appointment or arranged one through a desk at a resort or in a park, grabbed a cup of lemonade, met my guide of the day and let them know up front that I was a memer of the DISboards and already knew a bit about the resorts, points, banking & borrowing. Each time they were more than happy enough to show me the model if I wanted to see it, let me ask questions / get answers, and arrange for a ride back to the park (after fastpasses and ice cream were seen to )

No pitch at all if you go in knowing your DVC basics. If you're husband's on the iffy side about DVC and you know it's right, the guide can help to show him the light by letting him play with the on-screen cash verses DVC calculator.

By "sales pitch", I don't mean to say anything bad about the way they promote and sell DVC. The OP used this term, so I used it too. The pitch is just the way they go about informing the customer about their product, and how it would fit with the purchaser's lifestyle.
We bought into BLT in May without having any previous information about DVC. With our guide's help, we were able to have all our questions answered and are now very pleased to be members. We didn't at any point feel pressure from our guide and had a very good experience. We also got fastpasses.

We got $45 in gift cards (yea dinner!) and 3 cards that contained 3 fastpasses each. Sadly we never got to use them as they were near the end of our stay. We did get to make a families night though. As we were getting off the shuttle at the Orlando airport and they were getting on I asked if they were going to Disney and handed them the cards, at least someone got some use out of it!

I'm not sure if we got more gift cards and fastpasses because we bought in as other reports seem to be of lower amounts. But yum for free snacks and ice cream!

I just spoke to my guide today and said I wanted to do a tour of the models when we arrive in Nov. He said they'd pick me up and give us fast passes. So that's what I was offered today anyway. I'm not sure if we will all have to go or if I can go solo. We have a toddler that won't like being dragged there....BUT we'll see. I had no intention of listening to a schpiel. I already plan to buy.

FOR BLT: with the current incentive (maybe expired) and a member referral, Disney is actually a better deal than most of the limited resales I have seen.

Summary of what I was offered for BLT: $99/point, full 2009 allotment of points.
